I received my PhD in Physics in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. F. Bobba at University of Salerno, Italy, and Prof. M. Iavarone, at Temple University, Philadelphia, USA, studying the effect of magnetic templates on type-II superconductors, throughout low temperature scanning probe macroscopy techniques (magnetic force microscopy - MFM - and scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy - STM/S).
From 2016 to 2019, I was appointed postdoctoral fellow at SPnM (Scanning Probe Microscopy and nano-Matter) laboratory, University of Salerno, Italy, where I worked on the electronic and electro/mechanical properties of nanostructured metal oxide semiconductors, doped with ferromagnetic atoms, by means of UV-assisted scanning probe microscopies.
From 2019 to 2022, I was granted a 3-year research fellow at University of Salerno, under the project PON-AIM (Attraction and International Mobility), with the benefit of 12-month mobility. During this time, I led the nanoscale investigation of the mechano-elastic and electronic properties of strained two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). I visited for about 7 month the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides, at Universite Paris-Saclay, Orsay, France, where I used radiofrequency assisted electrostatic force microscopy to study the electric field control of strained TMDs, under the supervision of Dr. M. Aprili.
In December 2022 I have become permanent Staff Researcher at the CNR-IOM, Trieste, Italy.
